Take Me Away…Paris

#Take Me Away

It’s just a moment in time, a brief ‘take me away’ indulgence, where I’m transported to another place.  A memory filled with color, fragrance, light and sensation. It seems that some days I need just a brief escape from the cares of career life. Do you feel that way too?  As I close my eyes today I’m remembering this picturesque cafe in Paris. I snapped this shot in 2006, on a tiny Sony camera so small it could fit inside a clutch purse. A ‘take me away moment’ changes our breathing, calms our heart rate and changes the chemicals in our brains. Not only is it a reflection on a pleasant memory, it’s good for our bodies. I use this tool when I need to feel the full benefits of a ‘take me away’ moment. It works, it truly does.

Do you have those moments?

Where do you find yourself escaping to today?

Hi Heather,
I’ve just returned (and nearly recovered from jet lag) from a trip to Turkey and Greece. My in-laws own a house in Greece that is across the street from the sea. Sitting on the outside balcony gives the illusion of sitting on a cruise ship as if you are right on the water. Sipping my coffee each morning looking out to the bluest sea is my “go to” until I am able to return.

That sounds like pure bliss, Lori! What a fantastic place to have in-laws. Greece is definitely on my list. Thanks for sharing this moment of bliss!

Oh boy…I find myself escaping in my mind on an hourly basis…right now it is Italy. I have about 30 clients headed to Florence for a wedding, followed by individual travel in all parts of the country. Their plans have me longing for long pasta and wine filled lunches followed by strolls through beautiful Italian villages. Ahhhh…take me away! Enjoy YOUR wanderlusting

That trip you are putting together in Florence sounds amazing. Cheers to that Italian lunch on the terrace-I’m there with you.

Oh do I ever need to get away, NOW! But I soon will be as soon as school is out in just two weeks! Paris will have to wait; we are going to Carmel this year, and we are ecstatic! Wishing you a fabulous dream vacation my friend! Anita
